PHS Biomedical Science
In 1951, Henrietta Lacks, a poor woman with a middle-school education, made one of the greatest medical contributions ever. Her cells, taken from a cervical-cancer biopsy, became the first immortal human cell line, the cells reproduce infinitely in a lab. Students at Portage high school in the Principles of Biomedical Science class spent a week researching the story of Henrietta Lacks and discussing the bioethical questions raised by the use of her cells. They concluded the unit by looking at her cells under the microscope on slides they had prepared.
Kyle 3rd gr. students were learning all about rocks and minerals. They had a guest Mrs. Benton to run the program.
